Rocker Seger to open Evansville arena

Evansville's new 11,000-seat downtown arena will have its grand opening this fall with a concert by veteran rocker Bob Seger. The Nov. 9 show at the Ford Center will be the opening stop on the second leg of Seger's 2011 North American tour. The concert won't be the $127 million arena's first event, though. That will be a University of Evansville men's basketball exhibition game against DePauw on Oct. 29.
